Overview California state law requires that state and local governments ensure that adequate amounts of housing is available for current residents and future population growth. This process, known as the Regional Housing Need Allocation or RHNA, is a projection of housing units needed over a certain time period to accommodate households across all income levels. The four income levels used are, "very-low," "low," "moderate," and "above-moderate." Currently, the California Department of Housing & Community Development (HCD) creates the projections for the Shasta County region and allocates to each city and the county their fair-share" of the projection.
SRTA ensures that the RHNA projection is accounted for in the Regional Transportation Plan.
On December 21, 2018, HCD sent a letter to the planning departments of each city and Shasta County informing them of the region's RHNA for the period of December 31, 2018 through April 15, 2028. The table below identifies the RHNA by jurisdiction and by income level category.
